middle of the ground

The speaker was talking about taking a centrist approach.  This is a nice mashup of “middle ground” (compromise) and “middle of the road” (moderate or centrist).  Both idioms have the word “middle” and both describe the center of something, hence the mixup.  A big thanks to Katie Norwood for uttering this one and sharing it!

Did you like this malaphor?  Then get the best stocking stuffer around, the classic book on malaphors, “He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors”, available on Amazon for a cheap 7.99 (that’s cheaper than the toothbrush and toothpaste you were going to add to the stocking).  After the holidays the book can be a great addition to any bathroom library.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/0692652205
